One of my favorite restaurants in the West Village, and probably the world is Mas (Farmhouse). I recently came across some information about a new restaurant in the works by their chef and proprietor Galen Zamarra. The new venture is going to be just around the corner from their Downing Street location on an otherwise rather barren section of Seventh Avenue. Cooking over an open wood fire always provides a unique, and in my opinion better flavor, and their new eatery will do just that. Following suit of Mas (Farmhouse) this grill spot will be named Mas (La Grillade). Originally they were aiming for an early summer opening, but word has changed to mid-August. Living literally across the street from it means this will become one of my regular haunts, and I can’t tell you how excited that makes me!
